Casualty conveyed to hospital following house fire

Warmington Road, Hengrove


Crews from Hicks Gate, Temple and Bedminster fire stations were called to a bedroom fire in a residential property.


Four firefighters in breathing apparatus used one high-pressure hose reel and one triple extension ladder to extinguish the fire. 


They also used a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear the smoke. 


All persons in the house were accounted for and one occupant suffering smoke inhalation was conveyed to hospital to the ambulance service.


The cause of the fire is thought to be accidental.
